I've been iterating on making a larval collector for a few months now and have something I think works well that I'd like to share. This collector should be good for gently collecting larvae and eggs spawned in your display tank or another situation where capturing everything out of the overflow or isolating the larvae from the other creatures isn't really feasible.
The complete set of models for the parts is available on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6168731
A rundown of the parts and how to actually use it is here:
And some notes and some extra clarification is available on my local club's thread, here: https://wamas.org/forums/topic/102446-3d-printed-pelagic-larva-and-egg-collector/
Total print time is fairly lengthy, and expect to use the better part of a kilogram of filament, with some additional assembly required, but the result is a reliable modular collection tool that is pretty easy to use.
